“And he left me with a prayer / that I’d find you…”
Nobody has ever asked me what my favorite Elvis Presley song is, but if they ever do, I have my answer in the chamber: “Kentucky Rain, written for him by Eddie Rabbitt in 1970.”
By today’s standards, the lyrics are problematic: his girlfriend dumped him, and he’s on a quest to track her down. That’s also the plot of a lot of old romance movies, and it hasn’t aged well.
But this is one of Elvis’ most emotional songs, and I appreciate it on that level.
